Authentic and raw, This Day Won’t Last is a diary film meditating on longing for future, love, freedom, opportunities, and community. Through personal home-made videos and photographs, the director reflects on what it means to be young and queer in Tunisia. It draws attention to the still existing article 230 brought by the French colonisers to criminalise homosexuality, with hopes for a better future. From fear to uncertainty this film creates an intimate and touching story, a personal yet collective experience.
